Chats with Troy! 

This year we are introducing monthly Chats with Troy!  Each month Troy Bacon - your NMUSD Well-Being Coordinator - will discuss a relevant NMUSD Wellness for Life topic, and provide the opportunity for employees to ask questions about programs and resources. This is intended to be a platform for general information, so individual and personal questions should still be directed to Troy Bacon via email at All employees are welcome to join any of these sessions on the second Wednesday of each month at 12:00PM. Sign up today to receive the monthly calendar reminder! You are not required to attend even if you sign up.
